    Hey Ladies,

    As my packing list gets larger & larger and my suitcases seem smaller & smaller, I am wondering if you guys actually packed your parasols or how you got them down to your DW? I just ordered mine, so i'm not sure the exact size yet, but seems that they are going to be tough to pack & haul down there

      Mine came in a pretty sturdy box. I only had 4 of them though. I was able to fit the box in my suitcase, and it worked out ok.

          We used FI's long tennis bag and packed parasols and his snorkeling fins. Worked out well!

              Ive only got 2, but the plan was to wrap them in bubble pack and put them in my suitcase.

                Thanks ladies!!!

                I guess that brings me to another question....what size did you end up getting in your parasols?? Like from Lunabazaar.com i see there are the 20 inch, 28 inch, & larger 32 inch? I don't want them to be teeny-tiny, but also don't want them to be gigantic! hahahaha

                  I packed 4 at the bottom of one of our suitcases of wedding stuff and no issues. I didn't wrap them in anything or have them in a box. I got the 32" ones. I'm working on my review and uploading pictures to photobucket to post, but I have some pictures of me and the bridal party with the parasols so you can see the size.

                    My Mexico bride packed them into her suitcase and had no issues with getting them there. I would suggest maybe wrapping them in something to protect them from getting torn. I think the 28in parasols should be big enough. HTH!!

                      Same here no problems in your largest checked bag they fit nice and snug. I just wrapped mine in bubble wrap.
